Several years ago, a columnist at one of Korea's English language newspapers used the byline "Only the Morning is Calm." And while Korea is known as the Land of the Morning Calm, that columnist was right on target. From the hectic sidewalks of the cities, to skiers zipping down mountain slopes, Korea is anything but a country stuck in time. Yet, the past is not forgotten here. Elements of Shamanism persist, and Confucian tradition remains the foundation of Korean culture. If you are looking for a country that fuses a thoroughly modern mindset with a deep appreciation for tradition, Korea is the place. Now, combine a vivacious Asian culture with stunning mountain landscapes, rugged coastlines interspersed with stretches of glistening white sand beaches and cities that vibrate with energy and you've got an idea of what this unusual country is all about.
